Following allegation of relationship infidelity, a woman has been killed by her police boyfriend in Tura, a suburb of Bauchi state.
The deceased woman, Jamila Rahama, was reported to have been shot and killed by her lover, Mr Abdul – a policeman – over the weekend when he found out that she was cheating on him with his best friend.
A source who witnessed the incident revealed to reporters that the angry policeman stormed the vicinity where they were and shot and killed her instantly.
“After killing her, he left the house. He was later arrested by the police,” the witness said.
Another source who preferred anonymity said that Abdul had “heard news that she was sleeping with his friend. She had a child for the policeman and he really loved her, but maybe things fell apart between them and she started dating someone and that provoked him.”
The Bauchi state police spokesman, Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident yesterday.
